2019 US Youth Soccer – 16U Girls Championship Final – 9:20am – Field 2

2019 US Youth Soccer – 16U Girls Championship Final – 9:20am – Field 2



Wilson trophy company we managed to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was of four teams it was a round-robin actually so the best four teams in the whole nation and so we thought we were just the next best thing since sliced bread and I think that playing in that tournament was so surreal because you saw you played against other club teams that were so good and and at the same level as you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we're like wow these girls are at like just as good as us it's not better and we have to compete at the highest level and play these three games or I thought yeah I was around Robins good before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was in my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level and being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow the national championship it was really really special I think that was like the biggest thing I had really won and that's kind of for you soccer growing up that was kind of the ultimate prize and I think we were always super ambitious in in achieving that and to have that happen and I think what's so special about youth soccer is that it's really your family the girls that you grew up with become like your sisters and and you do everything and there's just like such a strong camaraderie there so to play with a team that you've played for for a while with and with these girls it's a very special feeling to to win something those were really great moments because at such a young age I feel like I was competing for something and really working hard to you know perform for my team and it was no longer just about you know whatever the result is there I mean at the end of day you know you win some you lose some but that was probably the moments that I was like whoa we got a win we got a state championship on our hands that we could actually bring home and I think those are really cool moments because you know you remember a lot of the times that you win you know you you try to remember the losses as well because you do learn from them but at the same time you you want to remember the wins that you have so state championships were definitely a really important part of my memory eras our state Cup was fun my team was very competitive I mean we had a lot of competition as well but I can't remember how many we want maybe nine I think is what we counted with with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is win state cup go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always fell short going to Nationals so it still hurts today to even talk about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even 10 times better to be a part of I get to play now in front of huge crowds and with all this spotlight and attention and I don't think I'll ever have that feeling that I did going through my you 40 National Championship I remember winning state Cup I can tell you how I scored what the score was I remember going to Hawaii that was our regionals Region four and I remember that national championship and I think that it stays with me so much because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning who you were and you know making these lifelong bonds my name is Tony McManus we are the oh one lady Lobos rush out of Memphis Tennessee you know we were we were here in the finals last year unfortunately did not did not finish it outs but that gave us a little bit of motivation going into this year it's been crazy and it's just been like really hard because everybody here is so good and everybody is good because they win their state Cup and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed her in we were able to come out on top for us is a little difficult because we work with a lot of underprivileged kids kids I can't afford to really play a big club so we're very small we haven't been around very long which is we put in a lot of work with the kids we picked them up we've been working with these guys you know just try to give them a future and there's something to look forward to get them out the streets put them in a place where they can come and just have fun meet other kids and train hard and just give them a goal whether it's college or to the next level so we've been very successful at doing that at this level so it's just it's been a great process it was nice you hello everyone and welcome to Overland Park Soccer Complex brought to you by Scheels side of the 2019 us used soccer national championships on Todd Panama and I'm here to bring you turbo Sports group's production of this 16 and under girls national final will be playing for the Mavis Doerflinger Cup and it's going to be legends ie out of San Bernardino California head coach Ted small against Lou fuse out of a st. Louis Missouri coached by Caleb McGee you're officials for this morning's contest is going to be hailey Moore weighing in the middle for your assistant referees the AR one is going to be Ryan Lee AR to is joy enough and the fourth official is Jose Arana these two teams come in having had slightly differing pathways to the national championship both of them ended up as National League champions legends ie one National League black with a record of 701 Oh an identical record for Lou fuse as they were victorious in the National League white both teams finished second in the group legends ie finished behind Las Vegas Soccer Academy at National League and Lou fuse was second in their group to PSA national based on goal differential which came down to the second tiebreaker so the excuse me goals against which was the second tiebreaker the initial tie breakers normally goal differential but they were exactly even on that but Lou fuse had allowed two goals whereas PSA national only had one goal against I'll give you a little bit more about these teams and who they defeated on their way through but we are underway here in Overland Park national championship on the line legends ie wearing the white kits with the black shorts all blue for Lou fuse had an opportunity to cover legends ie on their last group-stage game that was when they defeated Sunrise sting by a score of 4 to 2 so the offense came alive in that game but it was a little bit difficult to come by earlier in this contest as the championship was not kind offensively two legends ie if they had zero goals through their first two matches but they didn't allow any goals in those two matches either nil nil against Iowa rush and Las Vegas Soccer Academy we've got the line as Luke Hughes gets its first bit of possession Sarah Foley looking for an opportunity to push forward how they get it up towards the midfield stripe pushing up with a little bit of purposes Neidhart sends it up onto the attack but net sold was offside good build up place with some quick passing for Luke Hughes that just a bit too early a bit too eager there from net sole legends ie will set things up from the back as they're fairly deliberate here along the backline the dude calling for it here on the near side and she will get it up onto the attacking side trying to get it up to Bennett and it has a goal to her name one of those goal scorers in the final group stage against sunrise interesting thing about Legends is they've had five different goal scorers so nobody in double digits legends setting it up the do up the sidelines looking for white white possesses a decent amount of speed able to catch up to that one did stay in on the initial cross and then it was met on the way through so it'll end up being the corner kick now the goal comes in [Applause] off the set piece someone out of nowhere there was a bit of delay in the reaction there and ultimately the goal comes for legends ie and they score here in the opening stages of this match in the fourth minute of play legends ie manages to get the goal to put themselves up 1 nil so striking early somewhat different than they've managed to do in some of their other matches Jeffrey's setting it up for Luke fuse O'Neil comes through the middle first chance for the team out of st. Louis to get some attacking here and now a chance off the goal keeper off the shot from net sole it rebounded a couple times between the goalkeeper and the defender so a bit of nervy moments there for legends it's a free-kick ultimately given up so Luke Hughes pushed back on their heels momentarily but they're right back in it [Applause] they go on the ground with the free-kick trying to set it up towards the end line it would not stay in for sarah foley not a bad work around there as that was a designed play the kick went short tonight Hart right in the middle of the pitch and she served it through a gap and it was a good run from Foley but the ball just had a little too much spin on it carrying it out chance to push up field now for O'Neill back through the middle Foley dropped it back back back looks over the top Foley was offside legends have the one-nil lead goal coming in the fourth minute of play not even 5 minutes into this contest and they managed to put it in off the corner kick Madhu through the middle legends starting to build a little more possession after Lou fuse had it for a good minute or so Olive all over the top white the intended target didn't have the angle back the other way O'Neal in possession for Lu fuse pushing it out to the right for Foley return past towards the end line Duffy gave a little bump there it's a to number 11s collided Duffy won that battle Collins put it back into play up to the forward line again trying to find that pass through the gap Romero was looking for white here on the near side close to a handball but the official was at a bad angle to see that one looked like it might have gone off the shoulder nevertheless pink pops it out wide net sold couldn't Corral it runs into touch wind continues to blow here in Overland Park a much more normal Kansas wind than we've become accustomed to it's been fairly calm throughout this week the day here there where it would be a little more blustery but it's been fairly consistent throughout this morning played to the outside by Hilton second opportunity to do something different back and forth between the center backs not too much in the way of options Duffy was calling for it instead they go right up the middle Bennet was looking for it had it kind of stolen away white pushing on the pressure Pope sends it up towards the circle one touch pass ends up with back the do or throw-in was intercepted and how in the transition comes O'Neal finds a little bit of space passes through the gap to runners and the defender got their first cooked small preaching patience especially with his team in command of this one white Jeffries right there but why double the circle around pass dependent wasn't quite on hope all the way back looping one over the top gets in behind the defenders pushing into the boxes net sole and then coming at the last moment camper did a good job to get in front of that one right now legends content to just play a little defense attempting not to use up too much energy chasing the ball so they just come stay in position Metzl smith hope white comes to put on a little bit of pressure try to force a mistake pope continues the run instead taking it herself as Neidhart stepped right into the teeth of the defenders Pope Jeffrey's flashing out wide but Pope will come up the middle Bennet putting the pressure on Kehoe Neidhart to Smith Smith looks left looking for any kind of open space net cyl cuts through two defenders takes on a third drives into the Fox Camp forever at least slow that up now the shot coming comes up high on the defender she took it right off the chest [Applause] loof use building into the game they've had a decent amount of possession driven it into the attacking box but yet to find that final ball as of yet lacing one four Mets all on the far side Metzl hits the ground knight hard with the ball Smith drives past the defender stepping up to help Elsie Romero do I'm Drive looking for Bennett fortunate bounce Romero pops it over the top white trying to run on to it with Jeffries right on her Jeffrey's trying to shoulder off pops loose for white Jeffries makes the steal that gives up the corner substitution coming in now for legends Chloe Catalina has given a very early verbal commitment to the University of Toledo tattle eenie and Ladue as of right now planning to become Toledo Rockets but still plenty of time for them to change up that decision should they want to everybody in place and they'll go on the corner already utilize the corner well and they had a player open on the backside nobody flashing to that ball a wide open look at it for legends but it ended up off the head and just wide a goal new fuse has been solid in the midfield attack has tried to build up into the box so far set pieces have been what has done them in nearly twice looped up by foley defender dealt with it the to send it back Romero was calling for it that instead it's a cell Oh the do back to Othello content to just pass it along the defensive line right now Zillow ted small asking for movement out of his team not a whole lot to be had everybody kind of sticking in position kind of trotting around within a five yard window or so but that makes it pretty easy for the defenders to follow Haley Norway and joy Knopf agreed that that one was last touched by legends Luke fused with the throw but net soul with absolutely no space to work camper to a cell oh all the way back for Colin's Catalina open here on the side instead Romero in the middle the challenge table to steal it away if filter down through to Foley only eating up the space once again they tried to split the two defenders they've been successful in doing so at various times here in the early stages of the first half but it's not necessarily a game plan you want to live off of white trying to take advantage of the miscue this one pops back out white can to take on the defenders as she's got to pace to do so come on over at the last moment was Pope she plays it out it'll be a corner kick substitution coming in for loot fuse entering the game it's going to be R in a rut hurt and she will come in for Sarah Foley so another corner kick from this near side for legends the do was flashing outside though going to go straight for the target this time it's dealt with by the defenders net sold only one defender to beat if she can do so net so slowed up just enough second attempts to push forward was pushed back again the sell o the last player in defense and standing tall Neidhart options to the right comes extremely wide now to Rutherford she drives in from the corner right around the end line plays it out for the quarter kick needed to serve that up a little bit quicker if she actually intended you to get it across but once the defender got into position and added by an idea by Rutherford to just kind of blast that one off the defender and out kick to be taken by O'Neal could drive behind it awkwardly off Jeffries now the shot coming in Smith puts it just wide and I've opened up that shooting foot a little too much didn't allow her to curl it towards target the way she wanted nevertheless a good opportunity for Lou fuse to take a strike to try to climb back into this contest after the early opportunity for legends ie girls national championship for 16 and under white trying to double up the lead white takes a drive and it's right at Hilton my mistake looked at the wrong roster good save by Madelyn Davis Rutherford trying to win it back the due to strong here on the near side Duffy later pack Duffy again Orsillo it's time they loop it up towards midfield and there's Benning hope was right there decent idea from O'Neill the execution wasn't quite there Hilton you got it up through the midfield center circle Beck had Rutherford here on the wing but they've pushed it to the sidelines along the defensive side that kind of closed up the options Romero coming up through the middle Pope once again strong tat aleni camper making the run on the right camper lays it in off the defender wouldn't go though so it stays in he just keeps it alive it goes short to poke with it Jeffery's Pope a handful of dribbles gets a return pass from O'Neill tattle e and he was right there and then white put on the pressure to disrupt the pass challenge from burns collided with schroer blue fuse still in possession O'Neill looking for Rutherford the do stepped up the do smartly slows it up Bennett hopping one through white in behind the flag stays down white from the edge of the box looking for a corner kick couldn't play it off the defender correctly one time in from Duffy I don't think she knew how much time she had back to the near side for Lou fuse pulling it back Rutherford O'Neill Rutherford again is a given go approaching the half line Duffy as the number 11s try to outdo each other night hunter Metzl was over on the far wing but they play it into space along the sidelines instead schroer is pushed forward it has to cut back Knight heart gonna take a shot trying to catch the keeper out but ultimately that got caught up in the wind I think if this was an absolutely still day that would have been a really good idea it's Collins in good position overall but maybe a step or two too far out Schroeder kind of coming back able to win the throw for her team after she had pushed forward substitution coming up four legends ie coming into the game Riley Bradbury she's going to replace Tara Duffy Metzl he said deft with the touch in terms of flicking it over the shoulder but nobody dare to run on for it Bradbury till adieu looking for white Pope was there entered her name several times as she's come up from that centre back position to make several good stops schroer from the far side it's Lu fuse forced to retreat for a brief moment defensive help came back to Jeffries now Jeffries serves it up O'Neill back to Jeffries back Metzl intercepted on the way through natural throws in the shoulder that disrupts that back again Jeffrey's blue for you stringing together a lot of passes here but a lot of white back defending and that includes Lauren white winged attacker but helping out defensively Russa furred one time to the edge of the box Metzl was there for the header and then a shot ultimately came in from Knight art but so you kind of hit it off the egg call I think and it didn't necessarily get a good drive through it back wins the header Geoffrey's trying to chase it down another substitution about to check in for legends coach small trying to keep his lineup fresh hoof use continues to build it up from the back 28-minute Metzl from the middle net sole takes a shot score [Applause] the defense was on their heels just for a minute and that was all that Nestle would need Chloe net so the leading scorer for Luke Hughes and that's not going to please coach small at all that they allowed the best striker of the ball for his opponent to have that much time on the ball in the middle of the field so her eighth goal of the tournament a very important one for Lou fuse as Metzl has tied this one up in one goal comes in the 29th minute as I mentioned eighth of the tournament for Nestle she scored some important goals in the semi-final in which it took over time to defeat Las Vegas that punched their ticket and how net sold has given them a more life here as we approach the later morning hours kickoff at 9:20 Central Time no problem for those watching in st. Louis we've been earlier in the morning out in California so we appreciate you getting up this morning to watch this national championship match these two teams looking for the Mavis der flinger Cup legends looking for another goal off the corner kick attempt going for the back post too tall for everybody though still in though finally a whistle and there's going to be a foul call coming out is that Haley more way it's not too pleased with the amount of contact going on there at the end line make sure to stay tuned after our broadcast to this YouTube channel it is going to be on a separate stream that there will be coverage of the trophy presentation later on that one will come probably I'd say give it at least 15-20 minutes perhaps a little bit more after the match the two teams will head over to the stage off there in the distance or the American flag is that that's where the trophy presentation and medals will be handed out the turbo Sports Group will bring you all of that once this match is all finished up and the championship gear has been handed out and Gatorade spilled Jeffrey's pressure right in her face but she passes around it not so for O'Neil as she sent it right into LeDoux they do racing up from the left back spot now to put on a little bit more pressure Davis had vodka kind of caught up in the wind but fortunately for her O'Neal was right in the vicinity hope sent it out wide numbers pushing forward in blue now as they go to the far side net sole took it away after it was initially intended for Neidhart the do SLO Hilton Romero Fernandez who just came in moments ago blue fuse will be making a substitution here at the next stoppage Fernandez with a nice little saucer pass to the edge of the box white trying to run on to it Davis out who fuse fighting themselves back in this game equalizing goal coming in the 29th minute Chloe that song after legend had scored back in the 4th minute of play off the corner kick to heavy on the touch so throw in for legends substitution coming in for loot fuse is gonna be Kaylee Judi she will ruin place Chloe net soul so net so getting an extended breather before half-time Tesla lawn the end line ultimately ends up favoring Bennett she was able to win another corner substitutions coming fast and furious now is checking into the game for legends is going to be Corinne Barrett Minh Barickman replaces white so Bennett will take the corner numbers pushing forward towards the near post they go backwards a little bit camper was there quickly back in lieu fuse trying to catch legends in transition but they weren't fast enough with the exit so now they have to set it up along the back side got the furred check it back to pick that up with LeDoux right on her Jeffrey's Pope that's a third in behind Oh cell Oh back to help trying to make the steel was very calm in fact confident in her touch Jeffrey's O'Neil finally flashes forward getting around to defenders put it out little too far though and LeDoux was smart to come up from the wingback spot Berkman just decides to lay it back Bradbury Hilton he gave me starting to settle into more of a midfield battle now Rutherford with a chance to look forward players coming back in support though Fernandez doing a good job to take away the passing lanes hope gives it over the keyhole and through the middle now outside for Jeffries Jeffries cycles it back open Beck Neidhart I just coming back that was actually Judy Smith in a tussle a blue fuse stays in possession laced over here to the nearside brought down by Rutherford up towards the edge of the 18 O'Neill has to take it outside throw-ins get a favor Lou fuse it's a team out of st. Louis continually building up pushing forward it seems like an inch by inch but somewhat effective right now so they're able to string some passes together Russa firt one time in towards the edge of the box they had a player there but again coming back was Haley Hilton she was able to deal with it sliding challenge from back doesn't come up with possession off the side of the foot and that pass slightly weak from Bennett compared to what she needed on it and ultimately it ends up rolling into touch it'll stay with legends ie bradbury sends it back for hill-hill calling out instructions to her forwards schroer able to avoid the pressure Keo Beck sends it back O'Neal gets the pass from Pope back once more it seems to be forming a little bit of a triangle here po pushes north O'Neal Rutherford with space on the right trying to turn on the speed cuts it back puts it on the left foot right foot dribble top of the box looking for night hard Smith's with it needed to shoot earlier if she was going to try to slide it through for ruff deferred it was ultimately cut out Bennet able to disrupt that pass comes back good challenge from back to win that in the midfield player down four legends Luke Hughes gives it up Fernandes stands up a little worse for wear one minute of additional time gonna be tacked onto the end of this half far side pushing up into space with the defenders right there we've used surrenders to throw him but they'll be more than happy with that as it allows them to get numbers back defensively high up into the air one by camper edge of the box just wouldn't settle down for legends Hilton for ladoo quick passing they were trying to come out here to the nearside Berkman was making the run but not quite into the path of that ball kept time whistle goes 40 minutes played and nothing decided as it's all knotted up one goal apiece legends II's scoring in the fourth minute of play off the set piece the corner kick ended up knotting it in and then the equalizing goal coming in the 29th minute from Chloe net so we'll take a quick break for your halftime and when we come back we'll have more soccer action from shields Overland Park Soccer Complex

championship and I think that it stays with me so much because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning we were and you know making these lifelong bonds my name is Tony McManus we are the oh one lady Lobos rush out of Memphis Tennessee you know we were we were here in the finals last year unfortunately did not did not finish it outs but that gave us a little bit of motivation going into this year it's been crazy and it's just been like really hard because everybody here is so good and everybody is good because they win their stake off and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed through in we were able to come out on top for us is a little difficult because we work with a lot of underprivileged kids because I can't afford to really play a big club so we're very small we haven't been around very long which is we put in a lot of work with the kids we picked them up we've been working with these guys you know just try to give them a future there's something to look forward to get them out the streets put them in a place where they can come and just have fun meet other kids and train hard and just give them a goal whether it's college or to the next level so we've been very successful at doing that at this level so it's just it's been a great process you you welcome back to the Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex just outside of Kansas City in Overland Park Kansas side of the 2019 us youth soccer national championship underway here in the second half between Lou fuze and legends ie everything to play for in the final 40 minutes as it's tied 1-1 legends ie if you're just joining us scored in the fourth minute as the goal came directly off the corner it was a nicely floated ball and coming out was Madelyn Davis to try to make the grab and it just kind of caught her a little bit fat on the hands didn't wasn't able to handle it cleanly and it ended up spilling into the goal but her team would pick her up that's Chloe net so we get her eighth goal of the tournament scoring in the 29th minute as she was able to switch feet and then good a good shot off and play it into the far netting looking for something similar here his night heart was trying to go out wide to nestle that was intercepted on the way through good play to recognize what was going on by camper right now both coaches said obviously with things they would like their team to be doing better but they can't have too much in the way of complaints do you go into the second half and give yourself an opportunity not too much more that you can ask for obviously coach small would be hoping that his team could have held on to the lead going into the break but nevertheless coach McGee's team doing a good job with an individual effort to find that equalizing goal we fuse building it up from the back running up here along the near sideline as schroer they tell to Utley don't find her as O'Neill peels back through O'Neill around the defender slides it up for Neidhart and then ultimately played out by henning her earns spun around a little bit and as Foley was right there burns back through the middle Hilton Duffy burns again Oh sell Oh both of these teams very good defensively as you would expect of teams playing for a national championship legends only allowing two goals against in group play is Bennet dancing around with it 10 yards outside the 18 put into a dangerous spot burns was there Duffy brings it down serves it back into the box but nobody there except blue Nets all confused for their efforts also only gave up two goals allowed in group play it did allow three in the semi-finals but as long as you just gored more than your opponent you'll make it here a lot of shutouts four legends they'll nil in their first two matches in group play and then winning one nil in the semi-finals is that one played off of schroer and out so winning an important throw in here camper gonna come up to take this try to put it deep into the box kind of difficult to deal with with the wind kind of swirling around they go a little bit shorter with it wind continues to be blustery picked up probably about five ten minutes into the first half Smith has it not too much space to turn schroer up the line ended up working out don't think that was the intention but it gets on for an Etzel coming back to help was Duffy and now he'll head off onto the attacking end take it away before Romero could get there Neidhart outdueled by Duffy but just a little bit from behind and they give the free kick to Lou fuse several clubs represented in the different age groups and between boys and girls here coming from st. Louis obviously Cal South always well represented a couple Scott Gallagher teams and sporting st. Louis made a show as well and one of the younger age groups infused with a couple teams the Schroeder brings it up the left ends it often Etzel trying to keep it in stomps on it right on the line drives into the box served up for Neidhart kept alive by kyo sent away but only to midfield collision there as Judy draws the free kick coach small not too pleased with that call felt it was initiated by Lou fuse 47th minute we'll play eighty overall free-kick coming in a dangerous spot basically right in the middle of the field Collins sets up the wall to her left she stands basically in the middle of the goal knowing that with this distance it's easy to go up and over the goal shot could have be taken by laser and ultimately wide Kylee Mazur electing did go for the shot as most people would in that situation that couldn't curl it enough to sneak it inside that post early stages of the second half white dispossesses sent through the midfield Romero had her pocket pick Neidhart looks to push on to the attack into the box but numbers surrounding her and White Knight Hart carries all the way to the corner flag little step over before she tried to send it back she will win the throw though Smith created space Smith a lovely little fake by Madeleine Smith to put it onto her right foot and then she just chipped it up at over the goalkeeper absolutely no chance for Jessica Collins to get that one based on where she was in the goal box and now Luke Hughes with its first lead of the game goal comes in the 49th minute first goal of the tournament for Madeleine Smith and what a time to pick it up so now legends ie facing a situation that they have not really been up against here in this national tournament almost always playing from a head now we'll see a kind of metal they're made of is this one's played by camper and easily claimed sometimes you'll see teams melt under the pressure when they're not used to being behind really have been given no indication that legend died he is that kind of club they seem to play together very well and always with a reasonably calm demeanor that when you're in the national championship game and all of a sudden find yourself down for the first time in quite some time and it ends up as a situation that you're just not really sure what you're going to get out of free-kick given and there was a little bit of a duel there and Keough ended up taking down hitting her coming over some of the girls from one of the other legends clubs over on the far sideline chanting let's go legends making some noise over there in the corner Amy Moore way had to come over make sure everybody was the right distance away now she'll blow the whistle and we'll get things back to live-action Neidhart able to jump up and get just enough of that one to disrupt it and play it out of bounds by Foley quickly back in looking for white but Pope is right there white tried to play it off of I believe Rutherford instead it's off the other way they got it up towards the middle third but no further back the other way we go now at camper in possession slowly rolling under one-time pass looking for bennett disrupted there by schroer and it able to pick up the loose change and then a little toe poke from Mercedes stroller was all she needed to get that one out a lot of players back in blue right now the only one even close to the half filled by and his net soul and I will get a foul and a free-kick coming the other way must to the displeasure of Alison camper didn't think she had done enough there to deserve the foul the assistant referee Ryan need didn't agree with her substitution coming in now for legends ie back into the game is Chloe tat aleni Natalie knee replaces hitting her going back to the keeper now is pressure coming trying to pass their way out of it throw-in does favor Lou fuses schroer was able to shield that off just enough to keep it away from Catalina sure our good passing in tight quarters Smith who has the go-ahead goal so I picked right off of her foot Romero has to peel back nothing in the way of options forward camper goes one time to the edge of the box handed away by Pope continued on his net Sol got a piece of it only enough to send it over the half line though Duffy Metzl with the steal back through the middle here's Neidhart just outside the circle nets are calling for it making the run but the pass was right into a defenders foot as Duffy was able to thwart that one burns from the left looking for white stayed in but white couldn't get to it before Pope little bit of a slow up here fairly fews Mazur gets it back after she handed off to Knight art curling ball towards the outside Swart making the run defender the last to touch it Zelo had to come back and deal with that one knowing it would have gone out for a corner kick Byrnes plays it up the line Mazur saw that one come a little too far off the side of her foot now 55th minute building up through the middle that's all a little too heavy on her initial touch then the steel made by O'Neal taken back by burns O'Neal spins her around but burns able to keep control a little bit of a shoulder there from kyo drop back by Smith O'Neal looking for Smith way too heavy on it and that so comes back to help that was actually Neidhart not a bad idea from Neidhart to let that run through as the dummy run but I think she's thought that Metzl was going to flash out towards the corner and she stayed more towards the middle of the field a solo plays it up towards the half line only to the circle before white picks it up tossed over here to the near wing and then right back for Bennett in the middle took a bit of a bump from Pope as she was able to nudge that one just enough duffy net sole gets the better of it and sole taking it off to the right now puts it into the edge of the 18 net sole able to slow it down just a little continuing on towards the line due to the wind now she sends it right back into the area but this time Collins comes out some aloof use fans trying to match the legends ie girls they're a little less organized I guess you could say just individuals yelling things out whereas the legends team starting some chants well Neal takes it after the clearance was made Keo doing a good job to get back and step in front of that one before it got into a really dangerous area time continues to tick off the clock as we wait for the ball to reenter the facility they played it up over towards the fencing on the outside the do figured it was better to just send it away and let numbers come back to help here's nets ol little rollover with the studs trying to hook up with Neidhart that was stepped into camp first saw it coming counter-attack on for burns calling for it and playing it into the run from Mero they all slowed up trying to draw the corner kick knew she didn't have too much they both dive after it stroller wins it Smith Neidhart switches it over towards the circle O'Neal goes north out of the side offside Foley just to step in behind the defender substitution now for legends back into the game is Bradbury she will replace Duffy Daffy put in some good work through the midfield looking for just a slightly different lineup burns who had already kind of switched over here to the right seems to have taken up that spot a little more permanently now that Bradbury is taking up more of a central slightly to the left role looking for the back post white is there but it's dealt with as Rutherford came over dancing with it on the sidelines poke able to keep it away from Bennett just long enough imagines trying to force leaf use into a mistake but right now the back for for Lu fuses cool calm and collected you can change at any moment its Pope tries to push forward look into work of the give-and-go but Pope wasn't on the same page and she had stopped up a run given right back in the midfield though as Smith brings it out left back on the right foot they have a stoppage I don't think that the call was a foul I think to worry for Haley more way was potential head injury and she kind of fell awkwardly there so Smith a little bit shaken up hopefully that's just a whiplash situation as that would probably be the best of the options but she doesn't look too comfortable right now trainer will come out see to her both teams coming over here to the sidelines as they look to get a bit of a breather get some water try to freshen themselves up for the final push in this match little over halfway through this half 62nd minute obviously this is going to add on a little bit of time at the end a theme or way trying to get the players back on the field get it going Hosea Rama doing the same everybody's got to clear off the water bottles just a little bit of a discussion there between the three nearside officials as to how this was going to restart they're gonna do a drop ball and loop fuse will do the sporting thing and just play it into the keeper so what Collins in possession they will try to set it up off the punt instead taken by back and then Mazur Neidhart lunges up into the air and she draws the free-kick Hilton in on the contact night heart draws it it's always one of those awkward challenges where the attacking player kind of leaps up into the air going through the ball and basically it's mostly a foul because space was taken away it's supposed to any malicious contact back lining this one up legends only going with a two-man wall that's what Collins called for that goes to the back post I think she might have wanted to shoot that but it came a little awkwardly off of her foot and basically went straight as an arrow and I think she wanted to get a little more curl on it had small calling out some instruction to his players wanting to change up the formation at least the organization of it tonight Hart going through the wickets SLO shielded that one off and Collins able to grab it before night art could get there Panik coming back took a bump from behind that's gonna draw the free kick and that doesn't please Jillian back at all I've contacted and when you come from behind you're going to give the official the decision to make one way or the other wind picks up again white slows it up schroer right there keeps a hand right on her hip controller dives in and Ryan D calls for the foul to basically be somewhat of a short corner kick it happened right around the end line caleb McKee telling his players to treat it exactly like a corner kick which will be Bennett serves it in live too low though for much to happen in the positive way for legends second opportunity now awkwardly off the body Vaughn Neal ultimately grabbed by Davis she stays down for a moment had a player fly over the top of her obviously no intention to injure but when you kind of leap up into the air I think there might have been contacted perhaps with a trail foot Davis seems no worse for wear after the challenge coming in from Bradbury a little bit of a whack there on keel goes all the way back for back schroer almost hemmed in there good pressure from Bennett but schroer wise to the fact that she had some space if she circled back take it away from Knight heart throws a leg in comes up empty-handed camper off a knight heart an out substitution coming in now for Lu fuse Brynn Jeffries will come in replacing Sara holy sixty-eight minute one one-to-one your score – apologies Bennett drives it up towards the corner keeps the ball on a string drinks lacking just a little bit loud that one to roll-out legend scored back in the fourth minute directly off the corner kick as that ball was spilled a little bit by the goalkeeper who fuses answered with two goals Chloe net sole scoring in the 29th minute and then the go-ahead goal for Madeline Smith in the 49th Bradbury was trying to push forward Bennett with it now Byrnes calling for it outside schroer and with a once again lunge in and she is time to those tackles so well here she didn't get called for a little bit of foul there just moments ago allowing the free kick to happen but for the most part she has been really solid here at the left back camper hesitated just a little bit because she was afraid of that being blocked but it ended up rolling just underneath her studs giving up possession and Lu fuse with the throw players warming up for both teams headed in the midfield Catalina able to win the free kick coming into the slightly dangerous area here I do right there looking like she wants to take the kick Bennett also up giving them a couple options mentions looking for an equalizing goal the two gonna serve it in takes a bounce White was there if there was any kind of spill but Davis solid in behind the ball some of the canopies surrounding the official scorekeepers as well as the the players pensions starting to raise up into the air due to the synthetic turf they're basically just held down with rope and cinder blocks and so you can't put stakes into the ground when you have synthetic turf wind it's starting to pick up even more it seems to be somewhat inconsistent with where it connects with everything is there's a windmill over to our right as net so gets into the box solidly out that's confident right there from Jessica Collins she knew that she had to come out and disrupt that one otherwise Metzl would have had a good crack at it most coaches asking their players to dig deep find that little bit of something extra lately more way calling for another player for leuf used to be seemed too Lu fuse with the Kaylie Judy coming into the game she's going to replace Chloe net salt so that's a pretty big blow for Lu fuse losing their best attacking player obviously with the lead already in their hands not a situation to where they need to necessarily look for goals but sometimes when you don't have the option then it becomes too focused on defense still out in the way of attacking options though for Lu fuse is that night hardest put some good work in slightly better suited as a service player with some speed and pace on the wings good interception though through the midfield pushing it up now is Romero serves one up off the defender Keo and out to claim it was Davis could run from camper she just couldn't get on the end of it throw her all the way back to her goalkeeper open outside Jefferies Jefferies insertion pushed Rutherford up to the attacking wing they try to lob it over the top Rutherford with a lot of speed but defender was closer to it initially wind caught that one curled it over towards the sideline away from burns it's going to be aloof use throw infuse make it a substitution as Madeline Smith will come back into the game and that's good to see if she's been seen to the appropriate officials not needing to go into any kind of head injury protocol and that draws a big round of applause from the loof huge fans schroer crunching tackle but winning the ball first is romero pushes it up this is either gonna go out over the end line or the sidelines sidelines is where it goes in the end but that had too much pace on it to be held by the confines of the field legends putting the pressure on trying to hand blue fuse in just about five minutes left in regulation give or take we won over the top the intended target was Romero but she knew that Schroeder was gonna get there first O'Neill in the midfield swaps it over for Rutherford farside eyes up the defender lays it back for Smith in the midfield Smith continues it back for Pope all the way back and it's Davis try to force a mistake and they do can't burn Davis is back in the goal and then camper was too heavy on the touch it went out that could have been catastrophic but Davis gets away with it I take her heart raced increased by about 10 to 15 beats there few lumps in the throats of loop hughes fans as their life at least their soccer life flashed before their eyes Jeffries Smith's with it all the way back to Pope Jeffrey's again serves it back for Pope O'Neill lupine one over-the-top rahzar effort brings it down took a little bounce but it came right back to her then she just spins it up towards the goal box Jeffries takes it back in so she can pick it up looking for the punt goes too high in the air so the wind catches it Smith able to hold up the run just a little bit but now here comes white numbers pushing forward in white as it's the last gasp perhaps four legends ie white gets the cross off Beck had it caught up between the wickets briefly but she was able to serve it out in the end Rutherford for O'Neil nice little pass for Neidhart they were looking for judy here on the nearside it eventually gets to her she carries into the box stabbing play from hilton that one runs out but for a goal kick judy not too pleased with that call as she felt that it went out before they played it off of her time ticking away 78 minutes night heart goes out wide for rutherford rutherford drives past the defender LeDoux did well in recovery rutherford finds a bit of space now LeDoux struggling to get back this time and Rutherford plays it off of LeDoux for the corner the substitution coming in now as Metzl rode a team to the game that's a– with the first goal it was the equalizer back in the 29th minute she as well as smith had to get checked out by the training staff but she doesn't have to enter the protocol either and able to return to the match you haven't seen any indication yet on how much stoppage time will be added on with a couple brief injuries you would have to figure maybe around two minutes Collins bobbled it just briefly trying to go quickly with it much better kick this time it's gonna get all the way to the half line camper with the nod gets it up to white and there's the whistle came in a little bit late as morwe wanted to see how the play was going to transpire see if anybody would have flashed towards the ball and a yellow card handed out as well Jefferies goes into the book now though card handed out in the 80th minute fourth official preparing the board gonna put the stoppage time up here in just a moment four minutes of additional time so a bit of a reprieve right now for legends as they look to put this free-kick into a dangerous spot white she was in a fantastic spot to get that one towards goal she got a really good flick on to it couldn't have done much better except perhaps steer it more towards that far post but it ended up safely in the hands of Davis bitch inside he's starting to feel it though that anxious feeling times slip it away from them loose fuse perhaps doing a little too much defending not too much else you can do when your opponent trying to throw everything including the kitchen sink at you it has it Nestle able to get in front disrupt that Neidhart with possession she's just gonna lob it up towards the corner Collins all the way out not wanting that one to roll out Collins will take it into the box she's gonna pick it up put it back into play off the punt you can't high up into the air not quite to midfield because of the wind back towards the circle Bradbury looking for options Bennett was the intended target here on the near side nice a little dink schroer pops it up towards the corner but again just a bit too much on it not a bad idea those it ends up rolling out on the touch line so it's a throw making it difficult for legends ie to get out of their defensive end Hilton Byrnes was an option instead she goes up towards the midfield stripe Nestle coming all the way back as was Neidhart Neidhart putting on the pressure just about two minutes in at a for additional minutes Neidhart sticks out a leg doesn't come up with anything your side now for Romero waits for the overlapping run tries to drive it into space herself now she finds burns with the pass burns a curler in and that hits the side netting substitution gonna be made by Caleb McKee she's gonna put Caylee Judy back into the game she'll give Casey Neidhart a break to her die time here for both teams Schroeder wins it settles down for Romero though flashes went outside Bennett slows it up stops on the ball and then plays it through the defender coming back with schroer keeps it in play nicely she could have just blasted that one out and instead her team ends up with a throw-in on the near sideline due to a fantastic decision for her to keep it in Smith just gonna send it up to the goal box Collins comes out electing not to want to punt it gonna play it from the ground decent Drive in behind it but not on target for camper O'Neal sends it through the middle took a touch on the way through one last push perhaps four legends Jeffries chasing it down white is honored Jeffries plays it out official pushing the legends ie club back we've played four minutes so the whistle could come at any moment into the box then it spun around ball sent away but not cleared completely now it's out there's two final whistle Luke use when the Mavis der faehre Cup and they are national champions for 2019 st. Louis with all its soccer history is home to another national champion is the 16 and under group for Lou fuse coached by Caleb McKean end up winning by a final of two to one legends how he got things rolling in the first few minutes scoring in the fourth minute of play directly off the corner kick Luke fuse would not be denied scoring in the 29th minute a nice little switch over and Chloe Metzl able to tuck it into the far netting and then the game-winning goal would come from Madeline Smith who would do almost the exact same thing getting a good shot off from the middle of the pitch and looping one over the goal keeper she has the game-winning goal to win a national championship so as the players celebrate they get a round of applause and they're gonna go over and celebrate with their parents and friends and family over on the far side why not they've all put so much time and effort in to help these players get to where they are so they deserve a round of applause as well as do the officials for the best selected to referee this national championship hailey Moore way Ryan D joy Knopf and Jose irani out doing a good job here in this national championship that'll just about wrap it up for our coverage here we hope you enjoyed today's contest we'll leave you with the sights and sounds as the players celebrate and receive their national championship gear but for everybody here at turbo Sports Group for Kevin making us look good down in the truck on top anula goodbye from Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex and good night you you today's match is brought to you by AE engine americaneagle.com bag tags target Chipotle Mexican Grill expand a brand Dick's Sporting Goods MLS NCSA Nike+ coaching alliance premier international tours Soccer Shots sun-maid ta petrol United Soccer Coaches US Soccer Federation Wilson trophy company
